IT WAS A MONTH AGO, that Mr. Bob was rushed to the hospital. The whole experience, for me, was akin to looking through the wrong end of binoculars. The patient felt that time passed quickly, and he was most startled by the amount of love that came at him in torrents from all directions. He had no idea that he was a lovable soul and it surprised the bejesus out of him, moving him to tears at times.

Today he was given orders to return home and it was a joyous occasion. It's a happy man who will be climbing into his own bed tonight.

We both thank you for the love you sent our way this past 30 days. It helped us get this far.
